A big thank you to all who completed the 2018 AMSS Assessment Survey. The value of such submissions cannot be understated and puts TeamEd in a strong position to work with staff in 2019 to act on the feedback submitted. Keen to hear what everyone said about anatomy, learning objectives, and OSCEs? Check out the submission for the data, colourful graphs and insightful comments that highlight student opinion on assessment.
Divestment. Why should I, a poor medical student who spends every second week eyeing off people's food scraps at McDonalds, bother thinking about who I'm banking with?

Congratulations to Elizabeth Dooley on her election as the new Clinical Coordinator for 2019.
The sleep lab in the old RAH was decommissioned upon the move and a lab has not been re-created. This means that they are unable to perform the more sophisticated 'level 1' sleep studies that are required to assess complex sleep issues that arise in the subgroups of inpatients that the nRAH is designed to care for (stroke patients and spinal cord injury patients as two examples), and they are also unable to optimally care for a range of other patients including those with chronic respiratory failure requiring nocturnal non-invasive ventilation and narcolepsy. The AMA(SA) and SASMOA both support the reinstatement of the sleep lab on this basis.
